I've noticed that during the nearly nine months I've been following the diet (and I do try to follow it quite strictly), that my hunger has shifted drastically.
While I used to be STARVING by the time I had lunch, and RAVENOUS by dinnertime, now I sometimes don't even feel hungry. And when I am hungry, it's not this intense ravenous feeling. It's just kind of a gentle reminder that it's time for some food.
I don't believe that I had candida issues before about three years ago (could be wrong), but I think that I've always had this hunger before mealtimes, and have needed snacks to make it through the cooking process.
Anyway, my question is whether you think this shift has to do with slowly beating down yeast (thus making me wrong about how long candida's been with me), or whether you think it has more to do with changing my diet.
Does the lessening of this hunger mean that my metabolism has shifted?
I'm not saying it's bad or good. I'm just curious about what's going on "in there."
Thanks so much,
